PrEP Works, Stigma Doesn't

mpwrprep.jpg

Many of us are curious about PrEP, whether we're taking it, thinking about taking it, used to take it, know someone who is taking it, or seeing it pop up in convos as we navigate hooking up. Whatever our relationship to PrEP is, many of us want to learn more about what it is, how it works, and what it means for ourselves and our communities. If that is true for you, then this is the event for you!

MpowermentPG is teaming up with Dr. Mark Hull, from the BC Centre of Excellence in HIV/AIDS, to talk more about PrEP and learn from each other about what PrEP means for gay, bisexual, and queer communities! We'll have the opportunity to hear from Mark, get to know each other, ask questions, and watch a new short stop-animation video from YouthCO. 
We will also be providing a light dinner for folks who join us for this important conversation!

This event is also an opportunity to learn more about efforts across BC to get our provincial government to fund this new HIV prevention tool. You can send the provincial government a letter here!

This event, like all Mpowerment events, are planned by and for young self-identified men who are gay, bi, or queer. We invite guys who like guys of all ages and their friends to attend.

Will you come?


YouthCO's office is located on the unceded traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh people. Our programs take place on unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of many Indigenous nations across what is now called BC.

YouthCO believes that all youth have the right to accessible and affirming information about our health. We also know each of us has a unique relationship to our bodies, sex, sexuality, substance use, and harm reduction. For many of us, the words other people use for our bodies and their functions are not the words we use for ourselves. Throughout our website, YouthCO uses words for bodies and sex that we know will not reflect the full diversity of our communities. We have tried to, where possible, be as expansive with our language as we know how to while being as specific as possible. As youth leading the HIV movement, we too are learning about the best words for our experiences and do not do this perfectly. We invite any feedback about the language used on our website to help us move forward in the best ways for all youth in our communities!
